The Huawei Ascend P1 TD-SCDMA which was lined up for launch through China Mobile has hit availability status. According to a previous report which also talked about a 2600mAh XL version, the device was expected to be released sometime towards the latter half of June.
The TD-SCDMA handset embeds the SC8803G Spreadtrum baseband modem that’s chipped out using 40nm CMOS silicon technology. Users of the Huawei phone should be able to look forward to relatively competent 3G standby and talk time. The modem allows for TD-SCDMA, GSM, EDGE and GPRS connectivity. Also, it is designed to prop up TD-HSUPA at 2.2Mbps and TD-HSDPA at 2.8Mbps.
Wang Weijun, Huawei Device’s president of Chinese division, expressed, “Our recently introduced smartphone line, the Huawei Ascend P1, has an innovative industrial design, high-end product configuration and outstanding user experience. The launch of the Ascend P1 on China Mobile’s TD-SCDMA network now makes this device broadly available to China consumers and furthers our goal of establishing Huawei as one of the world’s leading mobile phone brands.”
As for the smartphone in question, it snacks on Ice Cream Sandwich and leans on a 1.5GHz dual core processor. Apart from 1GB of RAM being mentioned among the memory specifications, there’s 4GB of onboard storage space. Spread across the front panel is a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD touchscreen and on the rear part, there’s an 8MP BSI camera with auto focus.
The Huawei Ascend P1 TD-SCDMA price details haven’t received a clear mention. But it is already available to China Mobile customers, as stated above.
